Surf Clube de Viana has a rich history. Being the first surf school in Portugal and playing a major role in the development of the surfing community nationwide, the SCV takes great pride in their local surfing culture and Portuguese heritage. The history of the surf club and its influence in the Portuguese Surf Federation are displayed in three interpretive panels on the hallway of the HPC. The artwork in their HQ were donated by the local municipality as well as non-profit institutions such as the APPACDM, which works with mentally disabled people. Every time SCV organizes an international event, they introduce some kind of local traditional display such as the drummers in the opening of the Eurosurf Adaptives in 2019.
